Damn these manipulative bastards: The way to our hearts is through childhood cartoons, and Reptar clearly knows it. (Rugrats! Nickelodeon! What are you, a monster?) Fortunately, the Athens, Georgia, quartet is every bit as captivating as their 2D dinosaur namesake, pumping tinny synths, tropicalia pipes, and affable hippie-dippie chanting through genuinely fun dance-pop. Were lucky this one worked out, children of the 90s: Rocko and the Modern Lives are probably forming as we speak, and that will not be pretty. With Young the Giant and 1,2,3.
